By the 12 hour point however the hunger pangs were kicking in. Usually in this instance I'd go and binge on whatever i felt like to get rid of the evil feeling of hunger. This time though, i was determined to overcome my aversion to hunger and reading the fast diet book had helped as it reassured me that I wasn't going to die from a few stomach rumbles!!
I chose not to eat during my fast as i'm the sort of person who can't stop eating easily once I've started. This worked for me and after the hunger lessened I found myself being amazed at how well I could deal with not eating
Thank God for still being able to drink, staying hydrated helped loads and gave me something to consume!
It took me a little while to get to sleep, as i usually always sleep on a full stomach, but I was determined to go to sleep as soon as possible so that I could wake up and have some breakfast!
Overall, a successful first fast - i even did some exercise and didn't feel faint at all!
This morning i was pleased to see i was 2lbs lighter. My fat percentage had also dropped by 2% and my water weight had risen by the same, so this proved to me that my fast didn't result in me losing water.
I've just finished a yummy breakfast of granola with grapes, banana and almonds and can't wait to have a nice sandwich for lunch!
Roll on the next fast day.
